Previous Names: Uptown Theatre
The 3rd Street Theatre was built in the early-1900’s as the Uptown, the Capitol District’s “Mini Theater”, and closed down in 1983. Having been abandoned for two decades it is very run down. In 2001 the owners of the Spectrum 8 in Albany donated this theatre to the Spotlight Players Community Theater group for use as a venue for their live performances. Renovations are expected to cost at least $350,000 to get this theatre up to code and convert it from a movie house to a live stage. As of 2023, the theater still sits vacant and boarded up. The “3rd St. Theatre” vertical sign face that covered the original “UPTOWN” vertical has fallen off, so the vertical again reads “UPTOWN”.
